However, we begin with a small appetizer:
In the booklet "Skagen Badehotel on Grenen - Danmarks Healthcare Source" from 1912 the text reads:
"You get out of bed, go to the window and open it! The air from the sea flows in so fresh and salty that you can probably feel it on your tongue when you lick your mouth. "
Back then the pamphlet did what TV 2's TV series does today - makes us dream of the uncomplicated life and wellness of staying by the water. This is probably why you have come to this site as well. But where are those places where you can still experience the classic Danish sea side holiday at a waterfront hotel? You can of course take one of the expensive ones, but the truth is that after TV 2's hit series took the country by storm, a lot of hotels have been stuffing 'sea side' in front of 'hotel' in name or description. That is why we have created this overview, where we guide you to the best places with the help of experts and your votes (you can vote further down).
